Official DPMO POW/MIA Count as of Sept. 20th, 2013
DEFENSE PRISONER OF WAR / MISSING PERSONNEL OFFICE (DPMO)
Unaccounted For
WWII Korean War Cold War Vietnam War Gulf War Iraq Other Operations Total
Total MIA ***73,661 *7,906 126 1,644 2 3 1 83,343
* NOTE: The Count for the Unaccounted is constantly changing as investigations are opened or completed. This count is for only completed conflicts so anyone missing in Afghanistan, like Sgt Bowe Bergdahl, are still under the Jurisdiction of that military branch. Accountablity for Iraq was turned over to DPMO on December 1, 2011. DPMO also accounts DOD Cililians and DOD Contractors. The 3 missing in Iraq are DOD Contractors.
** Reflects actual number still unaccounted-for. Personnel Management Korea (PMKOR) database count is slightly higher due to several entries pending administrative review.
*** The number represents those missing from World War II as determined from the congressionally-mandated “World War II Return of the Dead Program,” (which ended Dec. 31, 1951), and the final 1956 Army Graves Registration Service (AGRS) roster which listed all WWII individuals considered unresolved by AGRS at that point (it contained 80,871 names but included 6,299 men officially buried at sea who are not considered missing). The present total reflects those numbers as well as those recovered and identified since 1956 and will continue to be updated as ongoing identifications are made or as research supports adjustments to the list.
